Hey Thrill Seekers,
Its been a rumour that hasn’t gone away for quite some time now but yesterday Universal and Jimmy Fallon himself confirmed that in 2017 Universal Studios will open a new 3D attraction called “Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon”…
Jimmy Fallon is hugely popular in the U.S. and is the current host of the Late Show. Now as some of you might be thinking, a host of a late night talk show doesn’t exactly scream theme park attraction, so what’s it going to be like!?
Jimmy himself described it as “Just like Harry Potter but with me in it”. Universal describe it like this;
our team found inspiration in the outrageous celebrity races that have become one of the most popular segments of Jimmy’s Tonight Show. The source material already features a wild and crazy ride almost every week! And since Universal Studios Florida has long been famous for placing guests in the middle of their favorite movies and TV shows, we thought it was a perfect fit.
You’ll rocket through the streets—and skies—of New York City, from the deepest subway tunnels to the tallest skyscrapers, encountering colorful characters, famous landmarks and anything else that comes to Jimmy’s mind—and “that is some weird, wild stuff,” to quote an iconic previous host.
To make way for the new experience Universal will be closing Twister…Ride it out on November 2nd.
You can purchase Universal Studios Tickets from Orlando Attraction Tickets for as little as £113 for 2015.
